Y: The Last Man to be a Film Trilogy?
USA Today reports that the director of the big-screen adaptation of Y: The Last Man, D.J. Caruso, plans to break up the story of the last man on Earth into several parts.
According to Caruso, the first film of what is likely to become a trilogy will focus on the storyline of issues #1-14 of the series. Caruso added that he has had "preliminary discussions" with Shia LaBeouf to play Yorick Brown, the story’s main character.
Caruso was the director of another LaBeouf film, Disturbia. The screenwriter for that film, Carl Ellsworth, is also attached to the Y project.
According to Caruso, "The most important thing and the reason I want to do this is … I don’t want to say it’s the end of the innocence, but it’s actually a man-child who has to become a real man now."
"I think it’s a really simple, beautiful theme, but at the same time, the movie’s really pop-culture entertainment," Caruso told USA Today.
